Recognize any of these faces? This picture of the incoming class of 1974 sparked some interest as the uncovering of the photo from decades past left many current faculty and staff at the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology wondering about who the students were! Of course, we recognized Richard Dorson, even with his fancy hat, but it took a group effort to gather the names for the other smiles photographed. We took to Facebook to ask some of you if you recognized anyone, and some of you even spotted yourselves! We learned that this photo was taken at the annual dinner, during which students would gather and eat food from various places around the world. At this particular outing, Dorson had even requested that everyone go in Folk Costume.
